Computer won't go past the welcome screen

  1. Hi,

    My pc cannot boot up. When I press the power button, everything goes well until the computer comes to an empty desktop with no icons. It hangs there a little before coming back to the welcome screen, which shows all the users (1). If I try to click on it, the same thing happens. I'm running Windows XP on a Pentium Celeron 2.0 GHz, with 512 mb RAM. Any advises on how to fix the issue without reinstalling windows.

    P.S. The computer boots up in safe mode.
